Founder and Leader of Christ Embassy Church, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has once again taken a dig at science in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. His recent dig is clearly directed at the measures put in place by the Federal Government to contain the spread of the disease.
The popular preacher, while preaching via an online platform, spoke against the wearing of a facemask. He opined that the use of facemasks in a time like this is an embarrassment to science.
According to the clergyman, scientifically, it has been proven that facemask is dangerous to our health. He also went on to say that “If we go by science, you should not wear masks in public.”
Oyakhilome has consistently spoken against the measures instituted by the Government of Nigeria to deal with the pandemic. He has especially expressed his outrage at the fact that churches continue to be closed, a sentiment which was recently re-echoed by colleague preacher, Bishop Oyedepo.
